Ryan was born in Des Moines, Iowa in 1979 and would later earn his B.F.A. from the University of Iowa in 2002. Most recently, Ryan participated in a solo exhibition at the Karolyn Sherwood Gallery in Des Moines, Iowa. Here is a brief overview of his show,"On the Morality of Memory"
This exhibition is about the construction and continuity of human identity through memory and experience. I am focusing on the disconcerting fallibility of memory as a recording device that is based in …reality, and I am glancing at the un-navigable paths through the subconscious and the imaginary. These issues become important if one considers their memory and experience to define who they are/were/and will be.
